Recycling center opening long overdue

Published 4:26 pm Monday, August 11, 2008


The citizens of Picayune have been waiting a long time for the recycle center to open. I was told that there was no one to ‘run’ the baler. Well I’m sure it doesn’t take a college graduate to do it and there are many people looking for jobs so that should be no problem either.

I have paper, plastic, cans, etc, as I’m sure lots of people do and it’s a shame that they have to be burned or taken to the dump. This is the 21st century and it’s long overdue that a recycle center be opened in Picayune.
